The Beauty Of An Ordinary Day

“I do believe in an everyday sort of magic — the inexplicable connectedness we sometimes experience with places, people, works of art and the like; the eerie appropriateness of moments of synchronicity; the whispered voice, the hidden presence, when we think we’re alone.”  ― Charles de Lint

There are days you stumble across extraordinary beauty. And then there are days you realize even the most ordinary is beautiful in its right. We walk in beauty daily, but often are too caught up in our thoughts to be aware.

The beauty of life shouldn’t have to be so overwhelming it has to catch our eye. When we sink ourselves into living we find it everywhere. Beauty doesn’t have to be seen. We can hear it in the nature’s melody. We can feel it in a touch, taste it in a home cooked meal, and smell it in the trees and flowers. Beauty is what pleases you. When you begin to see the ordinary in an extraordinary light it can take your breath away.

Today I invite you to experience life and beauty. Look around you. What do you see? Take a deep breath. Look again. Now, what do you see?

  1. I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning. ~ J.B. Priestley

  2. Fabulous reminder, Suzi!

    And this goes to show us that it’s all in how we perceive things; finding them beautiful.

    Beautiful photos! Have a super weekend, my friend!

  3. I probably needed this reminder today….as I am surrounded by a whiney 5 year old and a fussy 6 month old! I’m sure there is beauty there somewhere! :-)

  4. Amen. Amen. and Amen. WE just have to move slower through the world. And bear in mind that it’s not what we look at that matter – it’s what we see. Thanks for the reminder of the ordinary in all its splendor.
